WALKERTON â€” In years past, a 6-0 loss at the hands of Jimtown might have seemed pretty respectable. It might even have been thought of as a kind of moral victory for John Glenn.
You couldnâ€™t tell that to first-year Falcons coach Dave Sharpe after Saturdayâ€™s loss, though.
Sharpe â€” the son of longtime Jimtown football coach Bill Sharpe and a former Jimmies football player himself â€” was taciturn following his teamâ€™s narrow 6-0 defeat at the hands of its Northern State Conference rival in Walkerton.
NorthWood tops LaVille for Argos Invite crown
NorthWood beat LaVille 4-0 to win the Argos Girls Soccer Invitational championship over the weekend.
The Panthers broke a scoreless tie at the half with two unassisted scores from Val Ostrowski in the first three minutes of the second half. Kaitlyn Heckaman scored on a pass from Kiersten Lehman, while Amanda Heckaman found Ostrowski for the final score.
In the consolation game, Munster beat Argos 2-1 with goals from Jessica Flores and Allyson Goodrich. Mariah Lineberry scored for Argos, assisted by Courtney Dunlap.
SEYMOUR â€” The LaVille high school football game at Trinity Lutheran has been moved forward from 7 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The Lancers are looking for their second win of the series after a 56-14 win at home last year, as well as their second win of the season following last week's 31-0 rout of South Central.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was rain shortened, but it will count as a win. The IHSAA will decide the score.
With constant lightening in the area Plymouth and Rochester were unable to continue their Friday night game at Plymouth. After a Plymouth 29-yard touchdown run by Michael Hartman with 9:24 to play in the third quarter, officials delayed the game for lightening the first time with the Rockies in front 35-0.
With the decision not to resume the game it will be up to the IHSAA to decide if that will remain the final or whether it will be a 2-0 forfeit decision.

LAKEVILLE â€”Â Most observers of the ongoing Northern State Conference break-up considered LaVilleâ€™s departure from the conference pretty much a done deal. On Friday, with the deadline to quit or stay imminent, LaVille AD Will Hostrawser made the announcement that many were already expecting.
ARGOS â€” A night thatÂ started out as a celebration of 50 years of Argos soccer, with many alumni in attendance including members of that original team, was dampened by lightning in the area Friday night. Â
BOURBON â€”Â Triton football head coach John Johns made one thing perfectly clear following his teamâ€™s loss Friday â€” heâ€™s darn proud of his charges.
While the crafty Northfield offense rolled up 287 rushing yards en route to a 27-6 victory over host Triton, the small-in-numbers, big-in-effort Trojans earned plenty of praise from their leader.
â€śWe dressed 22 guys and played 16,â€ť Johns said. â€śWe can last for awhile, but I wouldnâ€™t trade these guys for any other group of guys. I love each and every one of them.
